I love fall and I love soups – especially this Sausage and Kale soup. Even though it’s still hot in Southern California, fall is definitely in the air especially at night. I think most people already know how good for you kale is so i’ll skip that lecture. You’re welcome. I wouldn’t say i’m a fan of kale which is another reason I like this recipe so much. It doesn’t taste like you are eating kale or even something that is really good for you. This is a super easy recipe that is so fast to make. And, great for freezing the leftovers for nights when you don’t feel like cooking but still want something homemade, healthy and delicious. It is also an awesome one pot meal made all from items you can find at Trader Joe’s.
1 Tbsp Crushed Garlic
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 White Onion Diced
1 Package Un-cooked Chicken Sausage, Casing Removed
6 Cups Chicken Stock
4-5 Cups Kale, Cut & Washed
Kosher Salt to taste – about 1 tsp.
1. Saute garlic, onions, and olive oil until onions are transparent
2. Add sausage and cook through breaking into small pieces. I use a potato masher to break apart the sausage as it cooks.
3. Add chicken stock
4. Bring to a boil then reduce to low and let simmer for 10-15 minutes
5. Add kale and salt. I serve quickly after adding the kale so it is still crispy.
